The 8th grade Lady Yearlings continue to fight to improve their district record for the season. They faced Banquete at home on Oct. 8 after having lost to them in the Tuloso-Midway tourney.

The girls came out determined to take the win and show their opponent what they were made of – true blue winners! The girls seemed to take Banquete by surprise beating them soundly 25-12 and 25-8. The girls had a great match with everyone serving well, passing and digging, setting and hitting, and communicating on the floor. This was a great effort on their part. Kayleigh Franklin, Landry Brand and Heidi Mathis led the team with their aggressive serving. Ali Katzfey, Carson Crisp, Kylie Wallace, Abbi Schuette, Kayleigh and Landry hit very well the sets put up by Lexi Foil and Heidi. Laney Mosley, Lauren Carroll, Allison Ruiz, Alexis Salazar, Maggie Upton and Hunter Smith did a great job passing and digging. This win brings their district record to 5 – 1.

The “B” team split with Banquete with scores of 17-25 and 25-14. The first game was filled with errors due to no communication on the floor. After regrouping, the girls came back out in the second game and performed like a new team – talking, serving, and passing much better. Nickole Gutierrez, Vanessa Rodriguez, and Farren Bottoms led all servers by doing a great job. Loryn Calderon and Monique Cramer did a good job at hitting and hustling on the floor. Other players were Lillie Bottoms, Alyssa Constante, Stephanie Castillo, Andrea Waggoner, Ashley Killion, Kimbra Fox, Logan Quinn, Dana Bernal Kelly Lillie, and Sofia Ibarra. These girls continue to improve every day in practice as they gain more confidence in themselves.

The ladies play Skidmore on Monday, Oct. 15th there.

George West traveled to Skidmore to play their next to last volleyball match for the season. They continued on their mission to grab the district title. The girls won in two 25-13 and 25-14. Landry Brand, Heidi Mathis, and Ali Katzfey led the offense with their aggressive serving. Heidi and Lexi Foil did a great job of setting for all hitters in game one, and Kylie Wallace stepped in as setter in game two doing a great job for her first time at the position. The girls were able to get many attacks on the ball due to good team passing and communication.

The “B” team also won defeating Skidmore 25-20 and 25-23. Maggie Upton, Monique Cramer and Sofia Ibarra led all servers to grab this win. The girls played their best game so far by communicating well together and hustling to keep all balls off the floor and in play. Great job, Lady Yearlings!

This win brings their record to 6-1, leaving them tied with Banquete at this point. They have Mathis left to play on Monday, Oct. 22. Come out and show your support.
